The Renegade Queen (Rebellious Times Book 1), by Eva Flynn. (Still 0.99?)

"A really well-written book about a heroine, and time period, I am not very familiar with. So, besides a very entertaining read, I got to see a glimpse of a historical figure who is little-known to the general public, and was unknown to me. What a fascinating person Victoria Woodhull was. And this book, based on a real person and filled with historical figures, never felt like a history lesson, but more of an in-depth look at an American heroine. It also showed a side of Susan B. Anthony that many of us have never seen before." -- Amazon Reviewer

Sleeper Protocol, by Kevin Ikenberry. (Still 0.99?)

"This was a fun read! I think of it as a military sci-fi psychological thriller. The author did a great job getting into the head of the main character and weaving in the intrigue with the futuristic technology. Questions of identity, motivation, and purpose kept me turning pages. Add to that the looming threat of alien invasion, and the short-sided opposition from powerful political figures, and the story maintained an edge of delicious tension." -- Amazon Reviewer

Hyde: an Urban Fantasy, by Lauren Stewart. (Still free?)

"This book was a breath of fresh air. I absolutely love paranormal romances: vampires, weres, demons, etc... I've never read something like this before though. It's hard to come across good reads that are creative and original - the likes of something I've not read before, but Lauren does it! This spin on the "Jekyll and Hyde" concept makes for such a fresh, suspenseful romance. This book could've been written wrong... but Lauren Stewart did it right." -- Amazon Reviewer

"O-M-Effin-G!!! That was absolutely fabulous! I am telling you and swear in the name of my bookshelf that this book will sweep you away!" - The Solitary Bookworm

***This novel is intended for adults only. It includes lots of cursing, descriptive sex, biting sarcasm, and dark themes. HYDE was inspired by Stevenson's novella but is not a retelling, in part because he and this author have very different definitions of 'bad boy'.

Honesty is impossible when you don't know the truth to begin with.

Mitchell Turner is everything women want most in a man — he's charismatic, successful, and undeniably gorgeous. But he's not a man — he's a monster. By venting his rage 24/7, Mitch keeps people out of the danger zone that surrounds him. But, after the most incredible night of his life, he realizes that might not be possible. Except the woman he wakes up with claims she doesn't remember any of it. And that kind of thing can make a guy insecure.

Eden Colfax is kind, loyal, honest to a fault, and cavity-inducing sweet. To rid herself of the monsters that haunted her broken childhood, Eden doesn't lie, doesn't curse, and definitely never wakes up naked in strangers' beds...until the day she does. Then the flashbacks start — places she's never been, people she's never met, blood she's never spilled. And the only person with any answers is a man she never wants to see again.

What they don't know is that someone is manipulating them, determined to find out exactly what they're capable of. And when the truth leaves them nothing to hold onto, they will be forced into a partnership neither expected. Or wanted.

But in life, who you trust is as important as who you are. And when you can't even trust yourself, sometimes the only person you can rely on is the last person on earth you should be falling for.

The Russian Renaissance (The Sokolov Saga Book 1), by Ian Kharitonov. (Still free?)

"There are plenty of action/spy thrillers out there, and soon they all begin to feel the same. Not this one! It's a great read that really stands out from the crowd. Plenty of twists and turns involving global conspiracies, exotic locations and a dose of Russian history. the two main characters are brothers who really care about each other and they are both forced to battle a sinister international plot. The Russian Renaissance is a thoroughly enjoyable book and I can't wait for the next Sokolov adventure." -- Amazon Reviewer
